Messages are the perfect way to keep your attendees in the know about your organisation. You can use them to announce event updates or to share your latest news. But how can you post urgent information like time changes or deadlines without running a risk to clutter the app’s newsfeed? The solution: expiration dates. Our latest feature within the message scheduler allows you to keep the right focus by showing messages only while they are relevant. Here is how:
One of the most asked questions to our Customer Success Managers is: “How can I ensure that my event app will be a success?” Making an event app successful doesn’t only mean offering the right functionalities and features, it is also closely connected to your app promotion. Just providing a great app doesn’t necessarily mean that all your attendees will use it. But what happens if the app promotion becomes another point on your already packed to-do list? Conference Compass wants to make this easy for you with our all-new App Promotion Kit.
We are excited to introduce you to CC Assist, our how-to video series on the Conference Compass Support Pages and Conference Compass Youtube Channel. The videos will dive deeper into Eureka, as well as our content management system and enable you to better navigate and set-up your own app. We will walk you through the processes of different app features and teach you a wide variety of app building techniques. Learn everything you need to know, on demand and from the comfort of your office.
If your business is operating in Europe or working with European clients, you have likely been affected by the General Data Protection Regulation. Event planners, associations and PCO’s are no exception: The GDPR forced them to rethink their use of personal data and how they can optimise their procedures to ensure security and privacy. This includes their mobile apps, as these contain sensitive information like speaker profiles or contact information. Seeing this challenge, we released a new feature that will help you to stay in control – User roles. Now, it will be easier than ever to give the right people access to your app and it’s data.

What makes us at Conference Compass the perfect partner for medical and scientific organizations is that we understand the special needs of their conferences and constantly update our products to better cater to them. One key element of academic conferences are posters and abstracts. They play an important role for professionals and create the opportunity to engage with other conference attendees and share their research. As traditional paper poster sessions have started to become more digital, we optimized our app once again. Now, posters cannot only be easily added, found, and viewed, but also rated with all our event apps.
Conferences and their technologies have developed in the past year and the changes affected the way we view, plan and experience conferences. While certain trends are bound to stay, some technologies will see major updates in 2019. We asked our team about their predictions and trends for the coming year, and here are their answers:
Capturing insights and real-time data is now easier, quicker and more effective then ever before: The latest update of our analytics platform* allows you to evaluate your impact and measure your event’s success, giving you the ability to make data-driven decisions backed by real numbers. Here is a quick round-up of our analytics’ possibilities and what we’ve improved:
2 months ago, we introduced a new set of features that made it easier for attendees to network, meet up and stay connected throughout the year. To make these networking features even more effective, our developers connected them with another powerful tool: Push notifications. Now, your attendees will never miss a new contact, meeting or chat message again*. Here’s how it works.
This month, we are bringing new updates* to one of our favourite tools: The Eureka Ask feature. We like this tool so much because if gives the audience the opportunity to take part in a presentation and to raise their questions, but in a way that keeps you in control. To make the experience for the attendees and you as the organiser even better, we now let app users know whenever there are new questions, so they don’t have to leave the Ask screen. Furthermore, all question- and like-updates are now happening in real time, so you won’t miss anything.
Did you know that videos are processed 60,000x faster in the brain than text? Not only that: We are also programmed to retain visual content better. Studies have shown that the average viewer remembers 95% of a message when it is watched, whereas only 10% when read*. Reason enough for us to spend the past weeks creating a video about the Society App, in which we show you the clear design, smart features and endless possibilities of this app solution for associations and conferences. Today, we are happy to launch our very first product video:
